The property

This fabulous, detached holiday home is set over three floors in the quiet hamlet of Barfrestone, close to the historic city of Canterbury.

Spacious, light, and equipped to a high standard, this superb, rural cottage is the perfect choice for families and couples looking for a place to relax, unwind and enjoy time together, while still having their own privacy.

All five bedrooms are beautifully decorated and furnished, inviting guests to slumber for longer.

Amazingly, this cottage offers two master bedrooms, one with its own shower room and the other with a large four poster bed with views down onto the lane.

With a single bedroom and separate shower room with WC on the ground floor, this cottage provides excellent facilities for all the family, with plenty of room to spread out!

The formal dining room is truly inviting making it a lovely sociable area, where you can linger over a leisurely meal and discuss the next day's activities.

The sitting room is light, bright and airy with ample comfy seating to allow all guests to settle down and reflect on the day’s events.

Holidaying with those who enjoy a workout before starting the day?

No problem, just guide them downstairs where they can indulge themselves on the cross trainer and vibration plate, while others can appreciate watching a film on the large screen.

Lanes and footpaths start from right outside the door, so lace up those walking boots and stride out, or put on your helmet and cycle off to discover The Garden of England under your feet.

Of course a visit to the historic city of Canterbury must be on your holiday agenda when staying so close by, so why not explore the beautiful Cathedral?

Experience the sights and sounds of medieval Canterbury at one of the many museums, shop, dine or even enjoy a leisurely punt down the river before an evening at the theatre.

Let Yew Tree welcome you to rural Kent and a holiday to remember!

About the location


Dover 7 miles; Deal 8 miles; Canterbury 10 miles.

Barfrestone is a pretty hamlet set in the heart of rural Kent. Glorious countryside surrounds this lovely area, which gives Kent the title of Garden of England. Leafy lanes and stunning views across fields and woodland, make this hamlet a delight for walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers. Like most villages and hamlets dating back to Domesday times, the church stands in the centre. In the case of Brafrestone, it is the Church of St Nicholas, a Grade l listed Norman church which contains significant carvings around the door portals. Although the coalmines of Kent are long since gone, the village is on the Miner's Way Trail and is still a popular place to visit. Only a short drive away visitors can find themselves in the towns of Dover and Deal, where you can either land a catch of the day from the pier at Deal or wave farewell to the ocean liners from Dover Castle as they glide across the port towards open seas and faraway countries before striding off to walk the famous White Cliffs. If a day of history, river trips, shopping, dining and theatre sounds right for you, then make to the beautiful city of Canterbury and you can't go wrong. Perfectly placed and beautifully formed, Barfrestone is a well-kept secret, shhhhh!
